Here! I teach 9-12th grades, but in a small district with no art teachers in elementary or middle. I teach an Intro to 2D Art and Intro to 3D art, which I feel like are middle-school level crash courses. I also teach Sculpture/Ceramics, Painting, and Drawing/Printmaking, after they've had the appropriate Intro pre-req. All are daily 47-minute semester-long courses.

We just finished ceramics in both art 1 and 2.

Yes, although in my first level classes I teach middle-school appropriate lessons because my students don't have any art until high school. In the more advanced classes, I try to get them up to where high school should be.

Makes sense. What’s one of their favorite projects?

Wow! All great classes! and in the high school for 10 years and I feel like this is my best year yet. There’s a certain confidence that comes with teacher experience.

We talk about keeping rigor in our classes, however I’m finding my HS students need straight forward instructions.

What is your ABSOLUTE FAVORITE lesson?

It only took me 7 years to figure this system out.... posting in case it helps anyone else! I color coded my classes and printed off numbers according to the number of kids in my classes. I then assign each kid a number that corresponds with my gradebook. When they turn in their projects, they put their number with it. This way, no contact and I can easily see who has and hasn't turned in their projects yet. I take the list down once they remember their number.
